General Beyers reminds Genera I Smuts that in August he disapproved of Uhe sending of commandoes (forc- Beer troops) to conquer Gcr. man Soutluvest Africa, and expresses surprise that parliament confirmed I the resolution of the government to j conquer tlie Geruun territory with- out any pro vocal itxi to the Me insists that a majority of the Dutch people in the Union disapprov- ed of crossing the German frontier. Referring to ;t s tatcmen t tha t Great Britain had taken part in the l-Juropean war lor the sake the rights of justice and in order to protect the independence of smaller nations and to comply with treaties, General Beyers points to the resig- nation of two British ministers evidence "that a strong minority can- not convinced of the righteousness of war with Germany." As to the protection.of smaller na- tions, Gtntral Buyers says "I have only to indicate. how the independ- fence of the South African republic and of the Orange Free State was violated, and of what weight the Sand River convention was. "It is said this war is hem? waged against the barbarity of the Germans. I have forgiven, but not forgotten, all the barbarites perpetrated on our country during the South African" war. With very few exceptions, all the farms, not to mention many-, towns, were so many of the Louvains of which we now hear so much." General denies thai the Ger- mans invaded SoJth African Union territory, and declares "if they did the Dutch and. British would figfct side by side and that he would gladly lead them- GKNEHAL SMUTS' REPLY General Smuts, in his reply to the letter of resignation, says that all the plans for operations against Ger- man Southwest Africa niade consultation wltlTCreneral Beyers, acd that his suggestions were largely carried out. Your bitter attack on Great BriT General Smuts continues, "not only is entirely baseless, but most unjustifiable, coming as it does, in the midst-of a gfeat war. 'Your reference-to barbarous acts during -iinV Scut-ht African war cannot? justify the; criminal devastation ,of Belgium, and can only be to sow hatred and division among the people of South :-flfnra General Smuts, .refers to; the dom given South; Africa by- Great Britain, "which allows you to write i- letter for which, you with- jut doubt, be liable, hi the German empire, to the extreme penalty The minister goes on to say that [he-coast of South African Union is. ,breniened, that military beats have been held up, and that hei borders have tetn Invaded bv the Germans, and concludes by declaring "I cannot conceive of anything more fatal and humiliating than a life of- loyalty In fair weather and a policy ci neutrality and pro-German senti- ment in days of storm and stress."

FREE FITTINGS rarents, -while my great-grandfather fas one of the United Empire Loyal- sts that emigrated from the United States into Canada. I am a loyal Bri- tish subject, always was and always will be. In common with ail- ether Britishers, the present crisis only to feed the fires of patriotism and loyalty to the Union Jack and Bri- tish principles. I might further state that the yarty circulating the rumor may have'.-thought' that owing to me being able to speak German that my sympathies were with the Germans. This Is" iui. entirely; wrong impression. As a matter.of fact myf ancestors (pre- vious to the ones mentioned) did not come from Germany at all, but came from Switzerland, so that I cannot see where anyone has any reason what- soever of circulating such a report, with the exception of the reason I have given before. Thanking you for the space allowed me, and hoping that this will'end tho rumor. Yours truly, N. B. GOOD. Editor, Herald: I wish to [myself ot a charge that has been laid i against me by several citizens. j first I paid no attention to the report, but upon hearing what proportions it: had assumed, I thought best to state imy case and clear myself. the last few weeks I have been accused of arguing on'matters relating to tne present war, 'siding in with the.Germans. In other words, I was called a pro-German I wish to deny this most emphatically, and also wish to say that I- have never taken sides 'with the Germans since the war started, and I defy anyone to-prove otherwise. I have my reasons for be- lieviug that the rumor was started with a.view of injuring the Good Co.'s business. Every right-thlnfting person will agree with me that this is one of the most contemptible, tricks that any- one could possibly stoop-to, and if I were able to trace the rumor to where it originated, I would make the person publicly apologize. It is true I can speak German, but I 'was born in Ca- nada; EO were my parents and grand- uu.uig the present war the French artillery has shown its superior Hy over the German, leaving camp for the scene of-hostilities. In the above picture is seen the 75th French artillery TO OUR SUIT SALE Remember this is a sale of high grade cloth- ing, 20th Century, Fit-Reform and Society Brand Clothes that retail regularly up to and including SATURDAY LAST DAY OF SALE Last call to take your choice of any Suit in the house including for Charges made on all alterations.
